The Neolithic 'Barnhouse Settlement' is just by the shore of Loch of Harray. Only a short walk from the Standing Stones of Stenness.

 

It was discovered in 1984 during a field walking expedition by an archeologist, excavations took place between 1986 and 1991, over time revealing the base courses of at least 15 houses. The houses had central hearths, beds built against the walls and stone dressers, each dwelling appears to have been free standing.

 

The settlement dates back to circa 3000 BC. The houses were clustered around a central open area, this was divided into areas for making pottery and the working of flint, bones and hides.

 

Evidence suggests that settlement was abandoned around 2600 BC, the buildings being demolished after they were no longer of use. This has lead to the idea that the settlement was used to house the people who were instrumental in the construction of the stone ring, when the project was completed the workers moved on. Another suggestion is that the houses were the homes of an elite group of priests. No ones knows for sure, and probably never will.

 

The photo shows the entrance to one of the houses nearest to the loch.

Looking at what use to be the footprint of a giant, I feel as small and insignificant.

A small piece in a puzzle that keeps changing around me.

All I can do, Is simply admire and get out of the way.

Maybe just try and leave a footprint, so someone else might admire one day.

Άγιος Λαυρέντιος - Πήλιο... - Agios Lavrentios village / Pelion / Volos / Greece...

At 30 metres (98 ft) high, Silbury Hill – which is part of the complex of Neolithic monuments around Avebury. Is the tallest prehistoric human-made mound in Europe and one of the largest in the world.

 

I went out for a sunset, and this was as good as it got..lol

The hues created by the sunset were marvellous and the rock sculptures just added an extra touch to an already beautiful scene.

The stone circle at Castlerigg (alt. Keswick Carles, Carles, Carsles or Castle-rig) is situated near Keswick in Cumbria, North West England. One of around 1,300 stone circles in the British Isles and Brittany, it was constructed as a part of a megalithic tradition that lasted from 3,300 to 900 BCE, during the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Ages.

 

Various archaeologists have commented positively on the beauty and romance of the Castlerigg ring and its natural environment. In his study of the stone circles of Cumbria, archaeologist John Waterhouse commented that the site was "one of the most visually impressive prehistoric monuments in Britain."

 

Every year, thousands of tourists travel to the site, making it the most visited stone circle in Cumbria. This plateau forms the raised centre of a natural amphitheatre created by the surrounding fells and from within the circle it is possible to see some of the highest peaks in Cumbria: Helvellyn, Skiddaw, Grasmoor and Blencathra

Small build for a contest - the rule was to create something with a firemen's big ladder and I choosed to build something Flintstones-like :)
